Butter, in my words + butters

butyre : butter

The Illunse word for butter is butyre. Butyre is a very rare last name. Butyre is a variation of the Old English word for butter, butere. Similar Butyri is the name of a place in Russia.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for butter, butere (butter, milk for butter-making), and the Latin word for butter, butyrum. The Old English word comes from Latin, that's why the words are so similar.
